School Counselor Self-Advocacy Questionnaire was developed by Clemens, Shipp,

and Kimbel (2011) to evaluate school counselors' ability to advocate for their own

rights in the context of advocating their own role in a school. The aim of this research

was to adapt this scale to Turkish culture and to conduct validity and reliability studies

of the scale. The study group of the research consisted of 427 (304 female and 124 male)

school counselors working in various schools in İzmir and Manisa. The validity of the

scale was examined with the construct validity and concurrent validity. The singlefactor

structure of the scale was confirmed by the construct validity study. In the

concurrent validity study, a positive and significant correlation was found between

total and sub-dimensions scores of the Social Justice Scale and School Counselor Self-

Advocacy Questionnaire. Croncach Alpha and Spearman-Brown coefficients of the

scale were calculated as .85 and .82, and Composit Reliability (CR) and Average

Variance Extracted (AVE) values were found as .86 and .40. The coefficients obtained

confirmed the reliability of the scale. As a result, all finding supported that the School

Counselor Self-Advocacy Questionnaire is a valid and reliable measurement tool.
